A rare combination of skills that will have the biggest impact on your beauty, health and wellbeing.
Hi I’m Gemma,
Twenty-one years ago (1997) I left college with the desire to make a difference to peoples lives and figured that going to University to become a Registered Nurse, would enable me to do this.
Once qualified, I quickly found my passion, reaching senior level working within the field of cardiology. My job was to educate patients on health in relation to their heart.
Being a nurse at such a young age, you witness events that many others never see in a lifetime. Although incredibly sad at times, it helped me realise how fragile life can be, and the importance of making out time on earth, a happy and fulfilled one.
Further in to my career, I began to see the pros and cons of Western medicine and felt there was a real lack in helping identify and treat the root cause of many lifestyle related diseases.
Over the years the link became more and more apparent in how stress, tension and emotional blockages directly impact our appearance, physical health and wellbeing. Some of you may know this as the mind body connection.
I sidestepped in to Cosmetic Nursing in 2010 when my son was born after experiencing the affects of stress and burnout myself.
I wanted to move away from death and disease and experience the lighter side of Nursing and life!
At the time I’d suffered with acne for 18 years and eventually self healed. I identified a huge gap in the market for people experiencing similar troublesome skin problems, so I decided to take the plunge and set up my own private clinic.
I attended additional advanced training in anti ageing skin treatments, to qualify as a Cosmetic Nurse. I craved autonomy in my practice, so studied further, to become an independent prescriber. Thus enabling me to prescribe medication if needed, in the same way a Doctor does.
Entering in to the emerging field of Cosmetics was the biggest eye opener in my career to date and I questioned everything! My own morals, ethics and beliefs!
Years on I still somehow felt that I couldn’t truly identify, with what I considered to be growing in to a crazy, unregulated and somewhat dangerous industry. I would feel incredibly sad seeing images of people beginning to look odd, in the quest for beauty, when I was trying to achieve the exact opposite for my patients.
I also felt many vulnerable people were left wide open to exploitation, in the name of profit, when what they actually needed was help with self love and worth.
I slowly decided to drop certain services which didn’t align with my true values and who I was, and got really clear on who, and how I can serve.
Someone who’s looking for help with ageing concerns, but in a very respectful, natural and subtle way.
Someone who embraced how they look and didn’t want to change themselves, just restore and slow down time a little.
Someone who wanted to simply look good for their age and knows that the good stuff we see on the outside, comes from the inside.
When my second child was born, coping with the demands of running a busy clinic and family life, I landed back in burnout.
It was only this time I knew I had to revaluate my own lifestyle, boundaries and workload.
During this time I discovered Strala yoga. This was my saviour and it strangely began to enhance my skin work further, by delving in to the mind body connection.
I began to be able to piece together the missing links for people with troublesome skin concerns, taking a specialist interest in stress, wellbeing and the ageing process.
Clients who themselves were struggling, began to See the positive changes in me and began asking for help. It was then I decided to become a certified Strala yoga teacher and found myself travelling to New York, Berlin and London.
Fast forward several years and I’m proud to say my skin clinic has grown greatly, organically via word of mouth.
I’ve steadily gained a reputation for being the go to practitioner who can provide undetectable injectables, helping people achieve their own unique skin goals. People always report back that people comment on how well they’re looking, but other than great skin, are unable to put their finger on why.
I’ve also taken on the role as UK trainer for a National cosmetic training company, teaching other medical professionals, who are new to the world of cosmetics.
I have recently launched my own skincare Range, Timeless for age maintenance.
I’m truly grateful to be able to help so many people with their skin, health and wellbeing.
I’ve learnt and still learning, that reconnecting with who we truly are, dissolving stress and tension is the key to everything! Ageing well, being well and living well, its all connected!
